After we get off the train at Manchester, Picadilly, how far is it to the set of Coronation Street and what type of transportation do you recommend to get there? Do you recommend certain attractions as must see in Manchester?
I'm starting to get my UK adventure booked and this is what we're doing (I think). I'm flying into Edinburgh and then will travel to Manchester where I will meet Mr. Dabs and pick up a car.
1) where should we pick up the car? Airport? Train station? (if we take the train back to London)
2) what's the best way for me to get between Edinburgh & Manchester? Are advance tickets much cheaper?
Then we will meander through England, Wales and then loop back up to Manchester where we will drop the car and take a train back to London Friday afternoon/night. We're flying out of LHR VERY early Sunday and Mr. Dabs loves to spend Saturday in London. Based on what we're seeing and my already booked Highclere tickets, the Manchester to Manchester loop makes more sense than dropping the car in London (and paying a drop fee)
1) what's the best way to get back to London from Manchester? I found Virgin trains which had advance tickets for 12.50£, I saw that there was a bus, but it looks to be about twice as long. Is there another train? Megatrain (which I believe is just the regular train with a special car) doesn't seem to exist.
I will be travelling from Stockport on bus service 192 to Manchester but want to go to the Opera House theatre - could you tell me if this service goes near or do I have to go into Manchester and catch another bus out to the theatre.

I'm planning a business trip and will be spending:
* 2 days in Manchester
* 2 days in Liverpool
* 2 days in London.
At the end of January.
My question is what form of transportation is best this time of year:
1. Fly into London OR Manchester and drive or take the train to other locations
2. Fly to London AND to Manchester and drive or take train to Liverpool from Manchester?
Thanks for any help you can provide!
I have got a 10h layover at Manchester in Nov. Any suggestions on sight seeing except, perhaps, the Christmas markets?
Has anyone done this tour? I've searched VT, but no luck. Looks like it could be interesting, or just a bunch of tunnels that all look the same. Entertaining the possibility of popping out of the Manchester Christmas meet for two hours to maybe do this, but it could be total cr@p for all I know.
Sadly, it's only offered the Saturday. :(
Does anyone know the nearest Premier Inn to the Etihad Stadium?
I have a 6:25 am flight out of Manchester Airport and would like to park my campervan in a Jetparks carpark the evening before and sleep over until check-in time. Does anyone know if this is allowed or would it be against carpark policy ? It hardly seems worth staying in a hotel when we need to be at the airport so early.
I would like to check what's there to do in Manchester for a period of 2 days?
If I have more time and want to travel out of Manchester, where should I go visit?
I would like to take in the landscape, possibly a museum, some unique sites and must see/ do activities, and some shopping if there are good outlets ;)
Thanks in advance!
I will be in Manchester the 31st May-June 4th. I am staying in Manchester Vic and routinely joining friends at their hotel in Piccadilly. How do I travel between do to. How much for taxi? What about the train? Can someone help me with prices? Is their like a day pass for the train?
I may have originally posted this on the wrong forum - apologies if you end up reading it twice..I'm in Manchester from April 16th-20th (Monday, returning on Friday)and was wondering if anyone would be interested in meeting up. Also, any advice on areas to avoid would be much appreciated; I've already heard about Hulme and Moss Side but are there any other unsafe areas?
Hi everyone!I'll travel to Manchester with a friend to see The Stone Roses gig on 30th June. We're struggling to find a good hotel or b&b for two nights (from 29th June to 1st July),since everywhere's sold out or REALLY expensive (no hotel is less than 90£ each per night!) probably because it's a weekend plus there's an unmissable gig!
Do you happen to know any good B&Bs around the city centre?
Thank you SOOO much!
I will be in Manchester on the 27th of February and it would be very nice to meet other VT-members. I wonder if anyone is interceded in meeting for a coffee, lunch, dinner or a drink. So far I haven’t posted anything in the Meeting Calendar, but first wanted to know if anyone is interested , and in that case around what time?
We are staying around the Oxford Road station and was wondering if there were any good pubs and/or restaurants in that area.
Ive posted previously in this forum that I will be visiting Manchester and staying in Salford Quays in December. I would like to visit Salford lads club, i dont expect to be allowed inside, i would just like to see it as its an iconic image from my youth. What i would like to know is it is in a safe area to walk to from Salford Quays as i see from google maps it is only 15/20 mins walk away. I have read that tourists have been robbed in this area frequently. I would be doing this in the morning with my wife and young son and am used to travelling around big cities not dressed like a tourist.
